2) Download the PHP software and install it
3) Open 'C:Program Files (x86)Apache Software FoundationApache2.2confhttpd.conf' in notepad
4) Add the following lines in the end of the file:
LoadModule php5_module "c:/php/php5apache2_2.dll"
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
PHPIniDir "C:/php"
5) Extract PHP in 'C:php'
6) Rename php.ini-dist to php.ini
